Gobble, Gobble!

Tomorrow is the last day of school before Thanksgiving break.  We were looking for some fun ideas and Pinterest provided lots of inspiration, as usual.  We found a couple of turkeys made from fruit and decided to shrink it a little bit to fit into our lunch.
Our main entree is a turkey cornucopia.  We used a large flour tortilla for the base, added shredded cheese and sliced turkey.  We then heated it in the microwave, cut it into quarters and rolled each triangle quarter into a cornucopia shape.

Our fruit side is a fruit turkey.  We cut a pear in half and removed the seeds.  We then used plastic lollipop sticks to create our blueberry and grape feathers.  The orange feathers are carrots that we cut with a vegetable peeler.  The carrot was also used for the beak and feet.  Finally, we used a little bit of blueberry skin for the eyes and raspberry for the wattle.

Our veggie side is the carrot pieces of our turkey.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is vanilla yogurt was some mini leaf sprinkles.

Happy Thanksgiving, from our house to yours.
